    This is a regression, so let's see a bit how things evolve before adding a workaround for this PPA only, that may also have other drawbacks (tuning for an old CPU may slowdown on other CPU) .

    Until at least someone bisect the bugged commit.
    Oh well, there goes my gaming until this is fixed. Living on the edge ftw

      It is ge 7.1.2.2041. I know that some people have crashing problem for the issue you mentioned, but for me it is definitely the graphic driver. It worked perfectly with mesa 10.3 and Ubuntu's stock driver, but it has not been working since oibaf switched to mesa 10.4 until the update yesterday, now it is working again.

      Aside: The update also fixed this webgl experiement http://madebyevan.com/webgl-water/ Since oibaf updated to mesa 10.4 Firefox just crashed and chrome went black on this page,--again worked with mesa 10.3 and ubuntu's stock driver,-- but it is fixed now with the same update yesterday. Probably it was the same underlying problem with ge crashing.

          • Anyone having problems with DRI_PRIME? I had a dual AMD graphics laptop (Evergreen + NI, SUMO + TURKS). I hadn't updated my system until today, and updated both mesa and the kernel updated... well, now DRI_PRIME doesn't work, but this doesn't seem to be a kernel problem. Could this be the cause?

            Are you using Unity? AFAIK, this is really common. Try resetting it (I don't know how to do it, I guess you would have to rename some dot folder or something).

                • DRI3

                  Hi,
                  can anybody tell me how to get DRI3 on intel haswell, ubuntu 14.10 running? i found during some search that it is possible but nothing about how to.

                  in xorg.log it only says that there is no dri3 module found.
                  Code:
                  EE) intel: Failed to load module "dri3" (module does not exist, 0)

                      I disabled -mtune=generic, since it seems there is no progress on upstream bug. Please test and let me know if it is faster now.
